It’s no secret that I love using sheets of labels to make my own stickers. They’re quick and easy to do, and I love working on a full sheet of them at once because I never know what the end result will be until I peel one off. Knowing that many people have been going through rough times, I wanted to send some nice notes of encouragement, and the Just What to Say stamp set provided the perfect sentiments.
To make your own stickers, wet your label sheet in random areas. I used a foam brush to splatter water onto the sheet, but you could also use a spray bottle. Working quickly, add watercolor paint to the wet areas. The paint will spread wherever the water is, so you really only need to dab it wherever you see droplets. Hold the label sheet upright, and tap so that the paint runs down the page. Rotate the sheet and tap it again. When the paint is dry, use a stamp to add whatever sentiment you’d like to express. These stickers are great for sealing a letter. You could also place a sticker on a potted plant.
